Strawberry Lemonade Layer Cake

This past Easter we tried out a bunch of new recipes, one being this delicious Strawberry Lemonade Layer Cake which I saw originally posted over at Easybaked.  A few things to note, besides that it is yummy, is that the lemonade 'frosting' is more of a filling mixture that is spread all over the cake and between the layers. If you make it and prefer a stiffer more traditional frosting, add a bit of powdered sugar (just a little at a time until you get the consistency you like).

Secondly, I only used half of a packet of lemonade in the filling and it was quite tart with just half. So I would highly suggest you taste test it with half and see if you want to use the rest. Many thanks to Easybaked for this awesome recipe.


Doesn't that look so good? I agree! Ready for the recipe?


Strawberry Lemonade Layer Cake
Makes one 9" layer cake

One box of strawberry cake mix (plus oil, water and eggs as directed on box)

1/2 packet (0.23oz.) of Kool-Aid Lemonade
Yellow food coloring gel (as desired for color)
2cups Jet-Puffed Marshmallow Creme

Fresh strawberries to garnish.

1. Make cake according to box and bake in 2- 9 inch round cake pans as directed.  Turn finished cakes over on cake racks and allow to cool completely.

2. Cream together cream cheese, lemonade and yellow food coloring until smooth. Mix marshmallow creme in and then mix in Cool Whip until completely smooth.  Refrigerate until cake is cooled and cut.

3. Cut each cake layer in half. Alternating layers of cake with layers of filling, assemble cake.  End with layer of filling. Refrigerate and serve chilled, garnishing with sliced strawberries just before serving.
